Elmhurst Dental Implant Dentist Explains How Tooth Replacement Treatments Work

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Jul 26, 2022

While premature tooth loss can be disruptive and upsetting, it is by no means untreatable. Our Elmhurst dental implant dentists have put together this short article about addressing missing teeth and achieving a whole and healthy smile again…

Replacing Single Teeth

If you have lost a tooth due to infection or trauma, our team is here to help you restore and rebuild your smile. Individual replacement teeth are designed to look natural and to support healthy bite alignment. Once your restoration is in place, your smile will look whole and healthy again.

Replacing Multiple Teeth 

You may find yourself in need of replacing multiple missing teeth at the same time. You could, of course, use individual replacement teeth in several places along your jawline. Alternatively, you may choose to restore your smile with a larger dental prosthesis, like a denture or bridge. The most important thing is to make sure that your replacement teeth work in harmony with your existing natural smile.

Making Restorations Permanent

Thanks to advancements in the world of restorative dentistry, our team is able to make individual replacement teeth as well as dental prostheses permanent using titanium implant roots. This titanium extends into the jaw tissue, replacing the missing tooth root. Over time it will actually bond with your jawbone, forming a stable foundation.

Don’t let missing teeth hold you back from living your life to the fullest. Effective restorative treatment is available, and it’s more accessible than you may think! Please feel free to contact our Elmhurst dental implant dentists for more information, and to schedule a personal consultation.
